Great ride ! Really dusty though trails a little slippery due to loose dry dirt . Still awesome ride though . Hit ricochet on way down which was so badass

One of the most stunning hikes I've ever done. Breathtaking views pretty much the whole 12 miles looking over Park City, Big Cottonwood, and Millcreek Canyon. Lots of wildflowers right now. Started at Guardsman and had a shuttle car at the top of Millcreek Canyon which made the majority of the hike downhill and very easy, just a few fairly steep uphills mostly towards the start.

Started at Guardsman Pass and hiked to the summit of Scott Hill. This trail is great! Puke Hill isn't so bad if you're just hiking it but as I was coming down and all the mountain bikers were riding up I could understand why it's called that. Did this September 19th when all the trees were turning for fall. So gorgeous! I'd definitely do this one again. Would love to hike from Guardsman to the Park City overlook.

This trail is definitely my favorite so far! We shuttled to the top and it was definitely worth the $12!!

I really enjoyed hiking this trail because of the continuous views of Big Cottonwood Canyon and Park City. Didn't start hiking until late evening on a Friday night so there was less that a dozen mountain bikers on the trail. All of them were friendly and polite making sure that we were aware they were coming from behind.
